1. Since I only had a short run on the calendar yesterday, I focused on dealing with one of the major hotspots in my house. Our house was built in the 1930s and has VERY little closet space or climate controlled storage space. We have a weird little alcove in our master bedroom where I store all my “out of season” clothes.
This is what it was supposed to look like:
This is what it often looked like:
|I was searching for tights for NYE|
Since Virginia can’t seem to make up it’s mind about whether it should be 50+ degrees or 15 degrees, I was constantly digging for different seasons of clothing. So, I decided I needed to be able to get to any of the clothes.
All the clothes are now organized in bins that I can easily pullout. Most embarrassing part? I have an entire bin of just running socks. Hmm…
2. Remember that bet? Here I am ready to go in my green and yellow. Seems sort of fitting that the only green top I have that I can run in is an Anchor Porter sweatshirt.
3. My left calf is kind of pissy. It’s really tight and I can always feel it. It doesn’t hurt, it’s just uncomfortable. I forgot to wear my calf sleeves yesterday on my 3 mile barefoot treadmill run and now it’s less than thrilled with me. I rolled it using the pump from Shoo’s old strollerthis morning (what? it works and it’s cheaper than buying something. Light sabres work too, just for the record) and it’s a little less angry, but I think I need to invest in another pair of calf sleeves. Sigh. At least I’m able to run again.
OK, I’m off to enjoy this beautiful running weather, even if I do have to wear green and yellow. ;o)

Nothing wrong with an entire drawer of running socks!!!
I need more organization in my house too! My running wardrobe has expanded this year & I need to accommodate for it. FUNNY about your wager! I had one for the Rose Bowl too: http://www.runwithjess.com/2012/01/2-for-tues-lets-get-this-over-with.html
my entire house are those cl0oset maid shelves and bins…love them!! The outfit rocksand sometimes we use or rolling pin….like "the stick" whatever works right?
I looove bins! VA weather was wonderful when we were down. Who says it has to be cold in the winter? (It was cool to come home and see snow though)
Wow, that looks much better! Our closet looks like the original version most of the time… yikes.Hope the calf feels better!
Mrs. Viper banished my running clothes to the basement of the new house, but the upshot is I have a dresser down there that keeps all my gear organized. Congrats on cleaning up. Cheers!
Becoming more organized is on my list of things to do in 2012!But since my Christmas tree is still up I'm kinda behind on the organization thing. lol
that second picture CRACKED ME UP. OMG. i'm still laughing, bwahahahaha.
I'm in VA too! The weather is cra-zay! Shorts one day, Uggs the next. I'm having to get organized myself. Military installation living has been tough these 6 months. I found a home challenge that I'm doing. You should check it out! I blogged about my first week and there are links to the blog site. I really need it!
hahaha, I'll have to find a light saber somewhere should I ever need some rolling 🙂
I LOVE organizing. It's embarrassing how much I love it. Buying those bins and putting the right stuff in them would make my day.A few years ago I bought those ridiculous red and green storage bins for Christmas -they were on sale after – and organized all my Christmas stuff and labeled them. It has made life so much easier.
You look GOOD in green and yellow! Thanks for being such a great sport.
I could probably create an entire drawer of running socks! In fact, running socks are about the only socks I own! Ha. Unless running, I almost never wear socks…such is another by-product of FL-living.
okay, my closet looks like your before picture, I'm glad I'm not the only one : )
Girl – my hotspots keep growing & spreading! I use a Strassberg sock every time my calf gets pissy for a mild stretch while I sleep.
